    Harrisburg, Southern Pa., Labor Day Weekend: Warmth, Storms

    By By Alex Sosnowski, expert senior meteorologist.

    Warm, humid conditions will prevail in southern and central Pennsylvania through Labor Day. However, drenching storms will come calling on a couple of occasions.

    High temperatures will be in the 80s each day with nighttime lows in the upper 60s to the lower 70s. Saturday's thunderstorms will be followed by more stormy weather for Sunday and Labor Day.

    While Sunday and Monday will still have their rain-free intervals, the heaviest thunderstorms these days will drop blinding and potentially flooding downpours.

    The least rainiest spots through most of the day Monday are likely to be right at the Jersey shore and along the Delaware and Maryland beaches.

    Folks heading home from their Labor Day or late-summer ventures at the shore and mountains could encounter delays at the airports and on the turnpike and interstate highways Monday afternoon and Monday night. Patchy fog can also be a problem during the early morning hours.

    It will not be until a cool front swings through Tuesday that humidity levels will be shaved and the risk of showers and thunderstorms will diminish.
